Take Five! Spend Your Afternoon Coffee Break with the Great Sutton Foster

Tony Award winner Sutton Foster does it all. She's taken home two Tony Awards for Best Performance by a Leading Actress in a Musical for her work as Millie in Throughly Modern Millie and as Reno Sweeney in the recent revival of Anything Goes. And her credits don't stop there.

Aside from her Tony-winning work, Foster was most recently seen on Broadway in Roundabout Theatre Company's production of Violet in 2014. Her Broadway credits also include starring as Princess Fiona in Shrek: The Musical, for which she was honored with Tony and Drama Desk nominations, and the Outer Critics Circle Award. Prior to that, Sutton was Inga in the Mel Brooks musical, Young Frankenstein, Janet Van De Graaff in The Drowsy Chaperone (2006 Tony and Drama Desk Award nominations, LA Ovation Award) and Jo March in Little Women: The Musical (2005 Tony, Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle Award nominations). This past summer, Foster also starred in The Wild Party as part of Encores! Off-Center series.

Sutton Foster's comedy work has also landed her on two major TV shows. In 2012 she starred in the beloved, but short-lived ABC Family dramedy Bunheads. You can now see her strutting her stuff in the hit TVLand dramedy Younger. The season two finale of Younger airs next Wednesday at 10/9c on TVLand.

Younger tells the story of Liza (Foster), a 40 year old, recently divorced mother. As her teenage daughter Caitlin (Tessa Albertson) studies abroad in India, Liza decides to get back into the working world, especially after her ex-husband, David (Paul Fitzgerald), gambles away most of their savings. With the help of her best friend Maggie (Debi Mazar), Liza follows her dreams of working in publishing, but there's a catch: she poses as a 26 year old after being mistaken for one by Josh (Nico Tortorella), an attractive 26 year old, tattoo artist. Now Liza must navigate the new, millennial world all while maintaining her new identity. Younger also stars Broadway veteran Miriam Shor and TV star Hilary Duff.

In honor of Sutton Foster's birthday today, BroadwayWorld is inviting you to fill your afternoon coffee break with some of Foster's most memorable performances. Take five below!
